With the weekend of racing almost upon us we’ve asked the Punters Show team to analyse the fields and throw us a few racing tips. Unders and overs for the weekend at Rosehill Gardens, Caulfield and the Sunshine Coast. Giddy up!
Rail Position: +7m Entire Circuit
Track Condition: Soft 6
Track Type: Turf
Race 5 – High Tec @ $20
Caught the eye doing his best work late fresh, then followed it up with another luckless run second-up. He will appreciate the step up in trip, would have preferred he went to the mile but finds a weak enough race where he should be able to overcome the extra distance having a class edge on the field. Expect him to start around the $8 mark.
Race 9 – Thurston @ $6.50
Impressed first-up for Waller then backed it up with a cracking run last start over 1800m where he made up a stack of ground late and just got a little gassed over the last 50m. Close to peak fitness and will be suited coming back to the 1500m third-up and ready to win. Expect him to use the inside draw to sit a touch closer and take a stack of beating. Expect him to start around the $4 mark.
Race 1 – Foxplay @ $1.95
Dominant win last start but meets a slightly stronger field this time around with a couple of impressive last start winners. Will have to use a bit of gas to find the front here also or could get trapped in an awkward position. Still clearly the horse to beat but feel they could bet better between now and jump time.
Rail Position: Out 7m entire circuit
Track Condition: Turf
Track Type: Soft 6
Race 4 – DIVINE MR ARTIE @ $5.00
Much prefer him here back to 1400m despite a solid run at Sandown over 1600m last start. He maps well and this looks a very winnable race. I’ve marked him $4 and in a race with few alternatives, I expect he is supported.
Race 9 – A LOTTA LOVE @ $4.40
She ticks all of the right boxes in a race full of question marks. She maps perfectly, hard fit, given a nice sharpen up in a recent trial and is clearly the horse to beat here. The only runner I’ve marked below $8 in the field and expect the market zones in on her as the race draws closer.
Race 9 – SHADES OF BELLA @ $4.60
There are enough holes in her form here to be laying her at this early price. The Weir factor in a race with question marks and the fact she won last start have obviously attributed to the price. I’ve rated her at $8 with Kansas Sunflower and Chiavari and expect she eases over the next 48 hours.
Track condition: Soft 6
Rail position: True
Race 3 no.4 OUTRAGED @ $3.00
This is an open race on Saturday with many strong chances. To be expected to take $3.00 for a horse stepping up in grade against good opposition is ludicrous.
Race 6 no.9 FLAMBOYER @ $6.00
Good win last start in an easier event but needs to be double figure odds at least given the rise in company. Can’t see him featuring in this.
Race 7 no.1 INDEX LINKED @ $8.00
Won this race last year and comes into this after a big win last start. Looks to be a safe each-way gamble.
Race 8 no.9 GREGORY @ $7.00
Was an impressive maiden winner this track before being competitive against quality opposition at Eagle Farm last start. Again looks a good each-way chance.
